May 3, 2022
Community Fibre, London’s full fibre broadband provider can now take orders from 500,000 London homes and 116,000 businesses.
Community Fibre is commitmed to offering 2.2 million homes and businesses its full fibre multi-gigabit capable broadband by the end of 2024. In support of its expansion plans, Community Fibre has secured an additional £100 milliom facility from a syndicate of existing and new banks. The facility was significantly oversubscribed
Community Fibre will continue to scale through further deployment in existing boroughs as well as reaching new London boroughs. Community Fibre has an extensive network with presence in 29 London boroughs with immediate plans to add Haringey and Havering to the list. It has already connected and is providing free gigabit broadband to 300 community centres across London with many more planned.
Graeme Oxby, CEO of Community Fibre, said: “Bringing the best internet to our community has always been the focus of our business. With over 500k homes now able to connect we are well on our way to reaching our accelerated goal of reaching 2.2 million homes by the end of 2024. As an independent provider competing against larger incumbents, we know our goals are ambitious. However, we have been working hard to ensure that all of London has access to a high quality, high speed, affordable broadband network. We believe that London should have the best possible infrastructure to support its future growth ambitions.”
